No, that is not normal. That is extremely high and dangerous to your motherboard and processor.

You will need to remove your heatsink and fan, re-apply thermal paste, and properly re-seat them.

That equates to 205° F.

I'm surprised your computer isn't shutting down before the processor gets that hot.

What exactly are you using to get that temperature reading?

Very dangerous. As flavallee said, I'm surprised it's not shutting down either and it would be helpful to know what you're doing to cause that high of a reading. A bit more information could be very helpful.

Is there good air flow in your case? Is there a lot of dust (I've learned the hard way you need to periodically clear out the dust in your computers)? Are your fans working properly/are your fans good enough?

In a large percentage of the older desktops that I service, the processor heatsink/cooling fan unit is so clogged with dust, hair, etc. that it requires me removing the cooling fan unit so the processor heatsink can be thoroughly cleaned.

Then it sounds like this was done improperly or the fan has malfunctioned.

You need to clean our your case, remove the heatsink and fan, re-apply thermal paste, and re-assemble.

When you re-did the thermal paste did you use 90% Isopropyl Alcohol to clean off the old compound? When you re-applied it did you use a very thin layer? Too much will ast as an insulate and trap the heat. When you say the fan is shaky it may indicate all four legs of the heatsink are not fastened down which is very easy to do with Intel heatsinks.

When you replaced the thermal compound, did you pull the mb out of the case? If not, you most likely did not get one or more of the push-pins fully seated. I always recommend pulling the mb for an intel type hsf. This is for two reasons;
1 With the board out of the case, you can inspect the back of the mb to be sure all of the push-pins are fully seated/engaged.
2 You have to push so hard on the pins to seat them I am always worried that I am going to crack the mb pcb OR bread a solder trace on the board [doing it in the case]

I would most definitely pull the board and replace the thermal compound. Once all parts are clean and dry, apply the compound IAW [in accordance with] the mfg's instructions. Use too much and it becomes an isolator and impedes the transfer of heat.

Very important point. I use an exacto blade to apply the thinnest layer across the CPU surface.
